- Hi Antoine,

Hi Lukas

Your problems seem well in the range of what our autopilot capabilities.

- That's great!

There are already several universities using it.
- Do you know of any names of the universitys to contact and hear about
their experiences?

Regarding the supply of hardware, we have plan to have a new batch of
classix board ( twin arm7 ) manufactured in a near future.
- Once you know when "near future is" please let me know. Would you
recommend I get one of those?

Regarding the computer and linux knowledge, there is some need, but
don't get scared, others have succeded.
Regarding the pictures, the sample on the website are snapshot from a
downlinked videostream - it should be possible to achieve much better
quality using a digital camera.
- Yes, I think so, too.

Regarding meeting someone in real life, we have indeed some members in
germany - take a look at this page :
- Thank you for the link, I will contact him soon.

Maybe you'd like to come and discuss all this on our IRC chanel (
freenode #paparazzi)
- Sorry if I am being stupid: what is the links to the IRC chanel?

Best Regards


Beste Regards, Lukas
